A BOOK OF AIRS: SONG 32, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Shall I come, if I swim? Wide are the waves, you see:
Last Line: So through the streams leander did enjoy her sight.
Subject(s): Desire


SHALL I come, if I swim? wide are the waves, you see:
Shall I come, if I fly, my dear Love, to thee?
Streams Venus will appease; Cupid gives me wings;
All the powers assist my desire
Save you alone, that set my woful heart on fire!

You are fair, so was Hero that in Sestos dwelt;
She a priest, yet the heat of love truly felt.
A greater stream than this did her love divide;
But she was his guide with a light:
So through the streams Leander did enjoy her sight.
